A cheap instrument with a pedal steel sound could be a fretless 
guitar.  Take a cheap old electric guitar, pull the frets with 
pliers, fill in the grooves with epoxy or wood putting, sand it and 
restring with flatwound strings. Even cheaper would be to put a nut 
raiser on the guitar, raise the bridge and get yourself a steel bar 
like the lap steel players use.  Now you have your very own lap 
steel.  Be sure to tune it like a lap steel.  If you want the pedal 
steel bending sound, leave the whammy bar on  the guitar.
